Central California Property Damage Claim?

Our San Luis Obispo Property Damage Lawyers Can Help You Recover

California is a beautiful place to live, but the nature that brings such joy to the senses can also wreak havoc upon your property. Mudslides, earthquakes, fires and storms can all damage or even destroy your property and present challenges to you as an owner. You must assess repairs, deal with insurance companies and their paperwork, keep an eye out for any legal problems such as safety issues and ensure that your losses don’t continue accumulating. The San Luis Obispo property damage lawyers at James McKiernan Lawyers are well-versed in these cases. They work tirelessly to uncover the cause of the damage, establishing liability and defending you in court, if necessary.

How Is Property Damage Defined in California?

Of course, weather and “acts of God” are not the only causes of property damage. Other ways your property can be harmed or destroyed include:

  • Contractor mistakes
  • Construction defects
  • Leaky roofs
  • Faulty window frames
  • Rotting wood
  • Toxic mold
  • Termite damage
  • Fire and/or smoke damage

Sometimes, contractors, real estate agents or home inspectors fail to disclose these issues. You may not discover these defects until much later, and the value of your property will suffer. San Luis Obispo real estate litigation attorneys can investigate your case and find out who is at fault for your property damage.

We Take on the Insurance Company on Your Behalf

After suffering major property damage, you may do all the right things, such as thoroughly documenting your losses, and still be left wondering, “Why did the insurance company deny my claim?” The truth is that your insurance company isn’t always working for you. The insurance company works for its own profit. It may claim that the specific event that caused your property damage was “not covered” in your policy. It may try to take advantage of loopholes to deny or minimize your payment. Don’t try to take on the insurance company alone, especially in matters as important as property damage. Law firms such as ours are experienced in working with insurance companies and are aware of the tricks and tactics they will use to attempt to give you the lowest payout possible. Our job is to get you the highest payout possible, so you can repair your property and continue with your life.
